A civil war is when a war is fought by two or more factions trying to control the same government.
THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO USA/DC ILLEGALLY INVADING THE CONFEDERACY IN THE 1861-1865 WAR AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
The Southern countries called states grew tired of the yankee puritans who had more votes in DC financially raping them with “federal tariffs” stealing from the South to fund a yankee party in the North.
So the Southern Countries Voluntarily seceded from the Volunteer union they had Voluntarily joined, went home and formed their own government in Richmond.
Therefore this mass murder of the Southern Civilians by the USA Military was not a “civil war”, but a war criminal invasion of a foreign sovereign nation.
Followed by an illegal 156 year and counting War Criminal occupation of ALL the American Countries called states, not just the Southern Countries.
After 1860 the Revolutionaries Volunteer union was dead, replaced with a communistic Mandatory Military Dictatorship thinly disguised as a constitutional republic, and the constitution was meaningless window dressing to sell the illusion.
That constitution was a replacement for the first constitution the Articles of Confederation and expired in 1808 anyway as Thomas Jefferson said each new generation had the right to form their own contract to live under.
In other words dead men can not force their contract (constitution) on the living.
Thus the Republic of Texas is occupied militarily for 156 years and ‘THE STATE OF TEXAS’ is a occupying sub corporation of the USA/DC war criminals corporation.
The Ole Dog!
